About us

Create a credible differentiator for your organization by adopting design thinking, to transform HR from a ‘process developer and maintainer’ to an ‘experience architect.

With leadership realizing that employees hold power to providing an exceptional customer experience and have a direct impact on business outcomes, as HR you realize the need to focus on ‘a positive employee experience’ to align with the brand promise in the market.

In the gig economy, where money is no longer the primary motivating factor for employees you need to design a workplace having the right cultural, physical and technological environment, to attract and retain a multi-generational workforce.

Designed to succeed – Putting employees first

“Design thinking for HR and Talent Innovation” is about thinking like a designer and apply iterative design principles to identify the touchpoints along the employee lifecycle, where a positive experience has the greatest impact.

  • Personalization – forming a fit between the needs of the employee and organization.
  • Simplicity– the identification and removal of non-value-added actions, information, and processes to streamline experiences.
  • Authenticity– aligning employee experience to the company culture and values.
  • Responsiveness– enabling both employee and employer to share information and timely feedback, and to modify actions accordingly.
  • Transparency– improving visibility across the organization for both employee and employer.
